WARWICK — What concerns you most about your child’s use of technology?
Have you talked with your kids about screen-time limits and responsible online behavior, but still find it tough to manage what they do when you’re not around?
Come to Albert Wisner Public Library on Saturday, Nov. 11, for a presentation by Family Central on "What to Know About Parental Controls: Keeping Your Kids Safe Online."
The presenter is Don Robertson.
Discover what parents can do to minimize the harmful sites and activities that children can engage with on digital devices, often without adult knowledge or supervision.
Join us for a discussion of the technologies young people and families are using and some of the challenges and issues they bring. Topics addressed include:
• Applications and social media types
• Excessive use/addiction
• Inappropriate content
• Cyberbullying
• Security and privacy
• Parental controls
Robertson will share some practical ideas and tools for helping you stay in control and in supporting your children to make smart choices.
Robertson has worked in the IT industry for over 20 years and currently manages internal solutions deployment for a global accounting firm. He is the father of an independent 15-year-old daughter who has been the inspiration for his research and experience with internet safety and family controls. Robertson and his wife Teresa have been residents of Warwick for over 12 years.
Family Central is a grassroots movement based in Warwick partnering with the library, dedicated to safeguarding childhood and supporting family life.
